A Fonte Filipe Photo
Located in Querença, the Water Source "Fonte Filipe dating from the twelfth century and at the time was called Source Filipa because, they say the oldest was a woman named Philippa who lost their lives there.
The story goes that the young, after his death, appeared every day at sunset, washing and singing at the source, which terrified people and caused one there to pass at that time.
The source comes from a natural spring in the form of lime where many people came to quench your thirst. Nearby, about 1 km, there was another source, the Godaneira, which they say, had a better water source than that of Fonte Filipe.
These two sources supplying the populations bordering the Almond Tree, Resins, Carvalhal and part of São Romão, and its waters were used for irrigation of crops that exist there. They also say the older at the time there was a guerrilla (Guerrilla meshwork) that occasionally hid the source and frightened people requiring them food.
The Fountain was rebuilt in 1945, with two arches and five gutters. Today it is used for various recreational activities and the celebration of May 1.
